I wanted to add something to my Japanese learning to improve my listening/speaking skills (on top of what I am already using). Nothing major but it’ll be a small practice that will build up over time. The goal is to take one series and “decrypt” it 100%. For my example I took the JDrama “Rich Man Poor Woman”.
So I take an episode and I try to understand every sentence as much as possible (one sentence per day). Instead of doing it on my own I decided to share it so that everyone can benefit from it. That’s why I might make a topic for every episode or something (please don’t ban me) as it’ll be quite long. I won’t post 100% of the sentences, especially if it’s like ”はい、ありがとう” or ”わたしわにんげんです” but rather sentences that aren’t obvious to new speakers(kind of like me).
English is my third language and I learned it through fun stuff, not “school-type” of stuff. That’s why I am constantly looking for new ways to have fun in this Japanese journey and I hope I can at least motivate some people here . The reason I use a JDrama is because it’s the closest material to real life(and fun!) not like anime, which I like as well.
Enough with the rant of whatever you wanna call it, it’s time to dive in and we will kick things off with the first sentence, OBVIOUSLY! Just kidding, the second sentence!
It’s translated as “I can’t reach him”(phone call). Though I hear something like "なでない” and I couldn’t find anything about it on the net that made sense. Anyone has a clue about this?
PS : K.O from the beginning, the struggle is real…
